Dear Santa Layout

Christmas time is fast approaching and what better time to shop for yourself at It is the place to find great Christmas collections like this one I'm featuring today by We R Memory Keepers.  It's the North Pole I want it all bundle and it is perfect for those holiday projects you've been waiting to start.  This collection has the classic colors and patterns.  

There are some fun snowflake stickers I couldn't wait to use in this collection.  I adhered them to the layout with foam squares to give them some dimension and coordinate with the snow flake patterned paper I used for the background of the layout.

When I saw the alpha stickers I was really excited to use them.  They are really cute!  I had a bunch of titles I wanted to use, and settled on this one (so I'd have enough letters, ha!).

Silver Stickles added some sparkle to the center of the snowflakes and ran it along the edge of the photo to frame it out with some bling!  Visit FotoBella to see this bundle for yourself.

Have a fabulous day!

Happy Holidays Layout

Happy first day of December!!  Have you seen We R Memory Keepers North Pole Collection available now at  It really is a great collection for your holiday photos.  It's the latest bundle I've been working with for FotoBella's Design Team.  It's a very festive collection with traditional Christmas colors.  

This collection also has the large tags which I used here in the center of the layout, mounted on chipboard so that it would sit higher than the photos.  I embellished a lot of the layout with Stickles, the tag and the holly berries on the patterned paper and it really made it pop.

Grab this bundle today and make your own beautiful layouts.

Have a fabulous day!

I Love Aspen Layout

Aspen, Colorado is such a beautiful place to visit.  While we were there we spent some time at the John Denver Sanctuary.  The photos from the trip were perfect for the We R Memory Keepers Shine Collection.  

This collection has a few embellishments with it, but for the most part, I fussy cut a lot for a lot of my embellishments on tis page.  It really brought the page to life, in my opinion and this layout is one of my favorites.  

Everything you see on this page from the tree, dear head, hearts, owl, leaves, all fussy cut from the Journal Cards in the Albums Made Easy Card Set.  I added some Stickles, glossy accents and twine to the mix as well.  

I inked the edges on EVERYTHING!  Between the cutouts, the inking and the added shine, this layout came out with some great dimension and character.

Have a fabulous day!

I'm So Lucky Layout

There are several things I really like about the We R Memory Keepers Shine Collection.  One is the great variety of cards in the Albums Made Easy set, and the cork stickers.  Both of which I've used in this layout.

Although there isn't a lot of embellishments included with this collection, it is very easy to add your own.  I fussy cut the buck so that it stands out against the background paper.  I also added twine and stickles to the banner and flower graphics on the paper.

I love how this collection compliments the photos and has become one of my new favorites from We R Memory Keepers.  Visit to check out all of the Shine Collection.

Have a fabulous day!

Every Day Blessing Layout

Hey there!  I have got to share one of my new faves, cork stickers!  My absolute favorite embellishments in the We R Memory Keepers Shine Collection.  I mean just look at how cute that owl is!

The design of this layout all revolved around wanting to use that cute little owl.  I love the colors in all of the elements and really wanted them to stand out so I put them on a black card stock background.

To make the photos pop, I matted them with white card stock.  This was the perfect layout for the clear stickers from this collection, giving them an opportunity to stand out.

The "Every Day is a Blessing" sentiment is a card from the Albums Made Easy Set, that I embellished with Platinum color Stickles.

Have a fabulous day!

Best Day Ever Card

Who knew that the Albums Made Easy Card set would be perfect for making a card.  It's the latest FotoBella bundle, We R Memory Keepers Shine Collection.

I placed three journal cards on the base of the cards, inked, embellished with Stickles and star cork stickers.  

This is a quick and easy card, fun and vibrant and can used for many different occasions.

Let's Get Out & Explore Altered Frame

I had oodles of ideas when it came to designing with Prima Marketing's Forever Green collection for FotoBella's design team.  One project I couldn't wait to get started on was this altered frame.  

I chose a basic black 4 x 6 frame.  I chose the journal card "let's get out there" and placed it inside the frame.  I covered the front of the frame with the patterned paper and then went to town with the embellishments.  

The assortment of flowers in this collection is simply amazing.  The stick pins were a gorgeous addition as well, adding great dimension and interest to the overall design.

Layers of flowers, paper and wood embellishments really created such a beautiful look to this project.  Hope you felt inspired to create a fun frame!
